    that has a very simple answer, give your enginers more money and tell them to build it bigger, most will already be dreaming about it so....
    In the future there will only be two workers, a human and a dog. The human's job will be feeding the dog. The dog's job will be making sure the human doesn't touch the computers.

    When will Mr. Nibbles do a proper overthrow of Paradox in a true RA2-Yuri style?

    ...or have it already happened?

    2. What do you consider your most successful experiment to increase user activity on this forum or Paradox's Facebook page (e.g. game icons, special avatars, tagline contests, preorder discounts)?
    I hate to bump, but I am still fairly curious about the first question.

    I've always pictured Paradox Studios as a "business casual" environment. Who'd be the most likely to walk in one day in a swanky suit?

    That depends if you mean chain mail or tux.

    So, after seeing two threads like it here, and reading this CK2 forum thread, I did a forum search for threads with titles including the words Thank You Paradox. 45 threads came up with the oldest one being from 2001 in the EU1 forum. Pretty cool I think!

    So, to my questions:

    1. Do you guys get a lot of fanmail?
    2. What's the best/funniest/most rewarding thanks/praise/feedback you've gotten?

    1. When does Paradox plan to bring about EUIV - A year from now, two years away? Or is it half a dozen years away? Or are you working on it now?

    2. Out of ten, how would you rate working for Paradox Interactive?

    A couple of questions:
    1) Now that June is here, will Magna Mundi the Game make it? (I never played the mod, but it looks really interesting)
    2) Any hints as to what era that new game you guys are working on covers?
